New in popular music - new release of 2 CDs, which originated from the same name one-year project which questioning the relationship between contemporary and new popular music. Through multiplicity of terms of popularly focused on an influence and marked possible progressive tendencies in contemporary music by gathering composers and musicians that through three day interactive workshops reflect their interplay.
During 2017, our guests were composers and musicians from abroad Andrea Belfi and Nicholas Bussmann who worked together with local musicians: Sava Botić, Dimitrije Jakovljević, Predrag Okiljević, Nemanja Tasić, Nemanja Sovtić, Lav Kovač and Vladimir Rašković. This release includes tracks from sessions taken during April and November, which involved different methodologies in work process. The tracks from April were generated as an interaction with Maya Deren's silent b/w short films, while the November sessions reflect on different strategies of collective work in ad hoc group context. Inspired by Chris Cutler's insights that the development of music is possible with technological and innovative aspects of instruments and collective work, we have focused on collective work - one that reflects a cooperative relationship into the group, improvising and direct communication with the listeners.
